Another Outstanding Cross Novel

Reading the series in order and have yet to be disappointed. If I were to rank them in order, Kiss the Girls would come first, followed closely by Jack and Jill and then Along Came a Spider. If you're new to the series, read them in order - the characters develop as you go and references are made to previous novels. Patterson has a great writing style and he has given us characters who are real and who we can enjoy. So glad I've finally started reading the Cross series.

A let down for Cross

A few years ago a friend of mine loaned me the first 2 Alex Cross novels. I liked Patterson's writing style, so I thought I'd read this next book in the Alex Cross series. I found this book lacking in direction with the storyline. It had two different plots running throughout the book. The Jack and Jill plot is resolved with some satisfaction, but I felt the other killer's tale to be lacking in resolution. Over all this is not the best Alex Cross novel out there.

    DISAPPOINTING!!!

    This book had many twists, all of which were unpredictable and riciting. However, there was no James Patterson flavoring. Moreover, the entire course of the book consisted of two seperate stories. So, it is natural to assume that at the end there is a connection of these stories (it even said there was on the back cover summary). However, THERE WAS NONE!!! The book eneded leading into the next Patterson book--a desperate marketing ploy. I was extremely disappointed in this ending as well as the storyline. However, it is worth reading (it was a good read).

    Horrible!!

    I am typing this for my wife who after finishing this book last night launched the book into the bathroom. She then proceedd to yell at the book. All she did was whine about the horrible ending.

    wake me when its over

    I have read all of the Alex Cross novels and this was the only one that put me to sleep. The action was not intense and the characters feelings were not expressed like in the others, i was upset with this one and am expecting the next one to be his best yet.

    zzz wake me when its over zzz

    I am a fan of patterson and his hero alex cross. I have read all of the alex cross books and i liked this one the least. It starts off slow and stays slow, i found myself thinking about what i had to do for the day instead of about the book.

    A Disappointing Read

    The novel makes for a decent read--until the last several pages. Gruesome scenes of murder and betrayal come to an abrupt end, leaving the reading without any sense of closure. Perhaps it was Patterson's intent to parallel his story with the Kennedy murders, but America has had enough 'unsolved mysteries' for one century.
